"The pursuit of happiness requires a lot of courage. We strive for happiness in various ways: through professional and personal achievement, through love and friendship, and also through charitable effort. But to find happiness, we must first be at peace with ourselves. We must be more forgiving of our follies and appreciative of our abilities."
- For my oldest Son arriving SAFELY in his new home, to start his new life. I already miss him and that sweet Ms. Pickles. 'sigh' The goodbyes were so much harder than I ever imagined... so 'tears were rolling' and 2 days later I'm still looking for that dog when I come home after work and get up in the morning. :-/
- For those trying to save the deal on my house! Long story... but I could end up with 2 homes or homeless, if the deals or timing don't work out just right. So please keep praying for us! :-)
- For keeping my Faith and Hope during a heart wrenching and stressful week. Chicago winters and Houston summers are looking better all the time. Well... maybe. ;-)
"It’s possible to forget how alive we really are. We can become dry and tired, just existing, instead of really living. We need to remind ourselves of the juice of life, and make that a habit. Find those places inside that jump for joy, and do things." ~ Anonymous
